Read this article from CNN about the possibility of a new law in New York that would make everyone an organ donor unless you opt out. I guess our organs can officially be compared to SPAM and email lists.
I can understand the point that we need more organ donors, but why be sneaky about it. Most people would never know about this law and understand it enough to opt out if that’s what they wanted to do. Instead, why not create an incentive? What about a free driver’s license renewal for becoming an organ donor or a discounted vehicle registration for becoming an organ donor? You would generally register yourself as an organ donor at the department of motor vehicles so create a reason for more people to become an organ donor! Don’t just pass a law making everyone a donor without their knowledge.
This is exactly why folks don’t like government, it’s time to be more creative in our policy making.
